Changing the way you think about food can be as simple as changing the way you look at the *packaging* of everyday foods you might have in your pantry. Yes, the *packaging, * not the label or other health claims you might see. On a daily basis, I hear: “Just tell me what to eat, just tell me what to do.” However, I often guide people that sometimes it is not necessarily WHAT you are eating, but HOW you are eating a food item. What are you eating WITH that food item for lunch? HOW MUCH are you eating? WHEN are you eating? Are you eating breakfast? Are you eating 3-meals per day? What are you drinking during the day? WHY are you eating? …etc. With a few simple changes in your food choices and eating habits, meal prep and knowing what to eat can be much easier.

Scrolling through Facebook we come across a multitude of messages. Let’s face it, we can find something to fit almost every mood and personality within a one minute scroll (but who really limits to one minute scrolls?!). Over time I have learned to be more mindful of the things that I choose to post on social media and I hope after reading this blog, you will challenge yourself to filter the messages that you are sending, as well.
This blog is a little different than the blogs that Lemond Nutrition typically posts, but I would say that it is a topic that we are all very passionate about. I decided to survey our dietitians to get their thoughts on this meme. Below you will find four different perspectives that provide the reader with something to ponder.

In my 13+ years of experience as a weight management expert, I have come to learn one important lesson. One size does not fit all when it comes to losing and maintaining a healthy weight. Some may need more psychological care while others just need basic knowledge; while yet another needs to focus more on their intuitive habits when it comes to eating and nourishing their bodies. As a registered dietitian practitioner (RDN) and nutrition practice owner, I care deeply about directing people down the right path that is best for them.
Enter Utopia Food & Fitness. One of their co-founders, Carol Ireton-Jones, PhD, RDN, LD, FACN is a nationally known and highly respected colleague of mine. She along with her co-founders, Scott & Kirk Wilder, came up with a science-backed program that incorporates the right amount of calories along with the right amount of fitness to maximize weight loss without the loss of muscle.
